The first one feels more heavy and casual to me, It reminds me of Egyptian stuff. The Glass beads were such a glorious shade of teal but very large with huge holes. I may do these again on leather lacing, but I did not have any this weekend. These copper beads are coated ceramic, they have a handmade rough ethnic quality.
The second necklace is made of dyed stone called chrysocolla jasper in shades of green/turquoise. This one is strung with copper accent beads and spiral pendant. These stones were beautiful.
